My junior year abroad has brought me to Madrid, Spain where I am trying to write, read, reflect, and learn as much as I can about Spain, myself, those overarching life topics, and the different types of people who reside in this world.
I grew up on a farm in Northern California where walnuts, grapes, and olives are harvested once a year. Aside from doing the normal farm activities I've spent the rest of my life traveling, living in big cities, trying to walk the middle path, and generally maintaining a very optimistic outlook in life. I love playing sports, and have played rugby for 8 years in many different parts of the world (US, Canada, Trinidad, Spain, South Africa, Wales, Australia). I would say travel, music, and great ideas form a three-way-tie for my second passions. I'm an inherently solo traveler because I always try to stay open to new stories. I believe in destiny, not fate, and am a Libra.
I'm still working on my own but I'm currently living off two quotes, one from Vonnegut and the other from Incubus.
1) "If this isn't nice, than what is?"
2) "From here on out its instinctual, even straight roads meander"
I am currently studying to become a general thinker by nature but an Urban Developer by trade. There is a new global movement, in my opinion, toward creating a more sustainable presence on this earth. I think that cities, often the centers of life, economy, and culture (but also of pollution, crime, and poverty) can be planned, built, and maintained more sustainably and it is a shame we are not working harder to this end.
